And yet, as the Hotlist grew in popularity, my main objective remained to give authors and their work the entire spotlight. Truth to tell, I'd remove the Pat in Pat's Fantasy Hotlist if I could. But at this stage, I don't believe it's possible.
I had a lot of fun reading some loony conspiracy theories about whether or not I was someone in publishing, etc. And the more people wanted to know who Pat really was, the more I wanted to remain anonymous. A bit like the band Kiss in the 70s. . .
But now that some people have met me in person, the "mystique" is gradually evaporating.;-) Last week, after being bugged by pesky individuals who annoyed the hell out of me until I could stand it no longer, I decided to bite the bullet and activated my Facebook account.
So if you want to see who the infamous, Erikson-loving, Goodkind-trashing, epic fantasy aficionado that Pat truly is, you can view an album of my recent trips to New York City and Washington D. C. right here.
Be forewarned, though. Just like Kiss were never the same after being unmasked, so will you never be the same again after seeing those pics!;-) And yes, contrary to what some believe, I am human after all!
Don't expect me to waste too much time on Facebook, but feel free to add me as your friend. . .
